many angry and selfish people post on ET. first off, this post is meant to be a solace and peace of mind to them in relations of what and what not they are actually PAYING FOR. It is a common saying amongst the monied class that they are paying for the welfare mothers and they are paying for bank bailouts and they are paying for all government programs from a to z. Well I am here to say, they are not! The government, as we all know is in a deficit for quite sometime. For the most part foreigners, "communist" chinese, the Japanese are bankrolling the USA deficit spending. Taxes are not going up substantially because the government wants to stimulate and at the same time is afraid of the anger brewing. So if taxes are not going up, effectively all the loudmouth, whining is misplaced. You are not paying for squat! Your children and your grandchildren are on the hooks for this irresponsible bahaviour. There are those who are not selfish and not egomaniacs and propose that we must stop now and raise taxes and pay off the debt and start turn things around. There are minority and they are right as usual. The stupid loud mouthed so called conservatives want ever present tax cuts no matter what the consequence might be to this unreasonable request.
